In the Emptiness

It is the echoing
.           drip
of a tap in a deserted room,
The stifled
.           crash
of a door flung wide
with no one there,
The billowing of a curtain
.           whispering
in the shadows,
The blanketing
.           hush
of accumulated dust;
It is

.                               …Silence.
